While doing my morning surfing I ran across this nifty article

Last week, Chavez promoted Major General Henry Rangel Silva to general-in-chief, the top position in the Venezuelan military command.

It was a rogue act because, in 2008, the U.S. Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control named Rangel and two other Chavez loyalists as "Tier II Kingpins" for material support of drug trafficking.

The U.S. designation came of an administrative process so strict and thorough the U.S. government could indict someone if it's right — and be sued if it's wrong. There have been no lawsuits.

Rangel is said to provide material support for Colombia's FARC communist terrorists, who control 60% of Colombia's coc aine production, pushing it into Mexico and other destinations.


Petroeum World

Now I know there are folks who are going to cry lies all lies....but...
Last August, Colombian forces captured a major Venezuelan drug lord named Walid Makled-Garcia, who'd had a falling out with Chavez.

Makled was so high-ranking the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration last week declared him the "King of Kingpins" after his indictment in New York. Until this summer, Makled commanded Venezuela's air and seaports. His gigantic jetliners loaded with tons of coc aine flew from "the presidential ramp" headed for Mexico.

Makled says he kept records and tapes of his encounters with Rangel, and other top Venezuelan military and intelligence leaders, bribing them to let his drug jets take off. He made $1.4 billion from his work — about the same amount as Chapo Guzman, Mexico's richest cartel chief, whom Forbes magazine estimates is worth $1 billion.

Maybe Chavez is thinking these drug lord types are great at organizational skills... able to deal swiftly with opposition while still managing their daily business????
Whatever he's thinking he has a lot of people worried right now...and in this case it's not the world leaders but Big Oil and associated bossiness that are feeling very unconformable with all this...

Since you brought up the CIA...
did you know if you drive between Tucson and Phoenix AZ you'll pass an airport on the west side of the highway...
Take a close look at all the planes parked there...Funny how they all say "Air America"... as well as being parked so close to the border...

This is very true. I have seen it personally myself.
It is suppose to be a non-operational airport.
